Craig Grow, southwestern Indiana

My journey with FCA started in 1972. I was in high school and my baseball coach invited me to go to a FCA camp in Rome, Georgia. He said that it would not cost me anything to go. I loved sports and it was free so I said, sure. Little did I know at that time what was in store for me. After a week of camp, I went back to Indiana with a new purpose in life. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior.

Through the years I been involved with the FCA Ministry as a volunteer in a variety of ways. Then in 2013 I felt our Lord calling me to serve on the Indiana FCA staff. I am now blessed to be the FCA Representative for an eight county area in Southwestern Indiana.

It is my desire to impact the lives of coaches and athletes through the 4 C’s of the FCA Ministry; Campus, Coaches, Camp and Community. I know that our Lord uses organizations like the FCA to make an impact on a young person’s life. I experienced it firsthand. I am a product of the FCA Ministry.

It is only through your prayers and financial support that the FCA Ministry in Southwestern Indiana is possible. I thank you for teaming with me and Southwestern Indiana FCA to make an eternal difference in the lives of coaches, athletes, and to all whom they influence.
